Install Dreamweaver CS4 in Ubuntu and debian !


Build world-class websites and applications with one of the industry’s leading web authoring tools. Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 software is ideal for web designers, web developers, and visual designers. Manipulate pixel-level designs in Design view, or craft complex code in Code view while working in the real browser environment of Live View. There is no linux version for Dreamweaver, but   there are many open source alternative for this  product like Kompozer, bluefish ….

Now  we  will  try  to  run it   under  Linux (ubuntu or  debian)

you   should   have  installed  CS4 under  windows  because  we  need  this  directory  to  complete  the  installtion

now  we  need  to download  some  packages to  help  us . :

1- Download Dreamweaver CS4 : Click Here

1- Install wine

$sudo apt-get install wine winecfg

now  we  begin to  copy  folder from windows  to  ubuntu .

2-navigate to C:\Program Files. Copy the whole ‘Adobe‘ folder to Ubuntu /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files folder.

3- copy  C:\Documents and Settings\your-windows-user-name\Application Data  to /home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/All Users/Application Data/

4-copy C:\Program Files\Common Files  to /home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files

5- copy  C:\WINDOWS\system32  to /home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

6-copy   Winsxs  from   C:\windows    to /home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/  (this folder is  verry  important)

7-  import   the  registery to  wine

from windows  for  to   start and  Run (regedit)

go  to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE-> SOFTWARE->Adobe->Dreamweaver  ; Right click on the ‘Dreamweaver‘ folder and select ‘Export’. Save the file as dreamweaver.reg and  copy  this  file  to  ubuntu  home  directory  and  you  need  to  coinvet the  registery  file   to   ASII  file   (recode)

$sudo   apt-get  install  recode 

recode is  :   (Conversion between character sets and surfaces)

$recode ucs-2..ascii dreamweaver.reg
$wine regedit dreamweaver.reg
1- Download Dreamweaver CS4 : Click Here

Now you have successfully copied  all  needed files  to  run   your  installation succefully.

lets  give  a  test :

1- Download Dreamweaver CS4 : Click Here

$cd /home/username
$cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Dreamweaver\ CS4/
